Neutral, long wearing, matte and comfortable; need I say, I love this Full Finish Long Wear range by Colorbar. Read on to know more about the shade Rare Truffle.
Price: Rs. 825/- for 2.5 gm
The Colorbar Full Finish Long Wear Lipstick has a special matte formula that makes it easy to apply. Sets within seconds of application and makes your lips look fuller. Its waterproof formulation makes it last for up to 8 hours. Enriched with vitamin E, the Full Finish Long Wear Lipstick is smooth, creamy and gives excellent color without drying or cracking the lips also acting as a natural antioxidant against skin ageing.
My Experience with Colorbar Rare Truffle Full Finish Long Wear Lipstick:-
The packaging is typical of Colorbar with a shiny paper carton and a long slender tube. Details about the product are mentioned on the outer carton. Both the lipstick and the outer carton have a color coded sticker at the base. Quite an intelligent move since there is no other way to differentiate if you have more than one from the same range. The tube shuts with a click and hence is travel friendly.
The texture of the lipstick is smooth and creamy to begin with. After a while the color settles down to a moist matte finish. There is no tugging or pulling which is common in dry matte lipsticks. It is light-weight and hence a comfortable long-wear lipstick.
The shade is from my comfort zone; neutral. I can never have enough of neutral lipsticks in my stash. So, when I spotted this brick-brown shade, I had to pick this up. There is no shimmer to the shade which makes it more wearable. Considering the formula and the shade I would say this is a must have for office goers.
The staying power is definitely worth mention as Colorbar has kept the promise of a long wear lip-color. Without a lip-liner or base the shade stayed on my lips for 5 hours flat with minimal fading. With a lip-liner the staying power improves up to 6 hours. But I avoid a lip-liner with this, because, I enjoy the light-weight texture of the lip-color.
Pros of Colorbar Rare Truffle Full Finish Long Wear Lipstick:
